"The law and order situation has become precarious in the state. In the last one month, four such incidents have taken place. The centre should ask for a report from the Maharashtra government," senior BJP leader Gopinath Munde said in the Lok Sabha.
The 22-year-old woman photojournalist, who was at work shooting in the deserted Shakti Mills Compound, near Mahalaxmi railway station in Mumbai, was gang-raped Thursday night by five men.
Agreeing with Munde, Trinamool Congress member Saugata Roy said: "The situation is terrible. There should be stricter control over illegal alcohol and drugs consumption".
Responding to the concerns expressed by the members, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath said: "This is a serious issue. The home minister will make a statement on the issue in the house Aug 26".
